Sebastian Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix to retake F1 championship lead
Jun 11 2018 by Marjorie Miles
The Austrian said he felt disappointed at seeing Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari winning to regain the lead of the world drivers' championship on a circuit that has in recent years been triumphant Mercedes territory. He and Ferrari executed their race to perfection, took the lead in the title race and have left Hamilton and Mercedes with much to consider before racing resumes in France in a fortnight.
"I don't know, I haven't seen much of the times of the others so it's hard to read yet".
"There would have been gains and I think it would have been a close fight for the pole with the new engine parts, but we're going to get it later", said Bottas.
"Next week the World Cup is starting and I promise you that a lot of the games will not be exciting - but still people will watch it - but some games will be incredible".
"Today we're not the favourites", Vettel said. Write about something else. We all know we're on lap 69, but to someone who is a slightly more casual observer, they might think "oh, this must mean it's the last lap". Disappear, stay in front, or not get overtaken. Then obviously I was off the line and just couldn't make it.
It was left to Bottas to chase Vettel, who made a clean getaway from the start, with Verstappen nearly passing the Finn before the order settled down.

The 'trend' that is troubling the US
The biggest increase in suicides was in North Dakota, where the rate jumped more than 57 percent. In a 2016 report, the CDC found that USA suicide rates jumped 24 percent from 1999 to 2014.
Hamilton, fourth at the time, headed into the pit lane on lap 16 of this 70-lap race, but the early change of tyres allowed Ricciardo to usurp the Mercedes auto. "There is always something to do, and we needed to keep concentrated 100 per cent". "I was a lot happier with the auto and I think we can carry that into the race".
Hartley crashed out early at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve after an opening lap collision.
Vettel's best lap time of one minute 10.776 seconds bested the record of 1:11.459 set past year by Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton.
The team took some time to find its pace over the weekend with Vettel not fully at ease with the auto until qualifying when he found the set-up he wanted to deliver an impressive pole, from which he dictated the race and converted into an equally impressive win. "The victory was more important [than taking the lead]".
"I'm just so happy that I finished as from the start I was down on power and my engine was saying that it was over temperature and I couldn't get them down", Hamilton said. "At the end of the day all those issues are dealt with by the shareholders, they're not a team issue, so we don't have any involvement in it at all". It later emerged that the flag had been handed to her at the incorrect moment due to a miscommunication between the start/finish gantry and race control.
